BioFrom deep in the cosmos of Iowa comes a force known as Mondo Drag! With a wall of sound all their own, an arsenal of guitars, and a head full of clouds, they are on a rock n roll mission all their own. With songs of life, death, love, revenge, and the unknown, they are flying head first into the future with an anchor of reference for the past. Channeling artists like Pink Floyd, Pentagram, Blue Cheer, even Hendrix just to skip decades for hints of Sonic Youth, Dead Meadow, and Comets on Fire. The band released their debut album 'New Rituals' on Alive Records in early 2010 and have been touring heavily since. This year has seen Mondo Drag touring from coast to coast supporting acts like: Sleepy Sun, Black Mountain, The Black Keys, Wooden Shjips, The Growlers, High On Fire, Pentagram, Radio Moscow, Sweet Apple, Andrew W.K., many others.
